NBC Chicago debuts new set, graphics and music


WMAQ-TV, the Chicago NBC O&O, debuted a new look this week that featured a new set, graphics package and music package. The station has posted a behind the scenes video on Facebook.

The graphics were designed by NBC Artworks and are part of a large package for NBC O&O stations.
